20th Century Brazilian Social Thought

PORT 404

This course will familiarize students with the broad trends and debates in Brazilian social and historical thought during the long 20th century. Course taught in English

We will pay particular attention to the notions of race, ethnicity, and nation, focusing on seminal texts by some Brazil’s most important thinkers.  We will also engage with Brazilian cultural production (literature, film, music) to compliment and exemplify these intellectual debates.  Students will develop critical and comparative reading and thinking skills, as well as a working knowledge of Brazilian intellectual history.
